Abstract: Following the detection of the dengue mosquito, Aedes aegypti, on Groote Eylandt in October 2006 and the subsequent implementation of an eradication program in November 2006, Ae. aegypti was declared eradicated in May 2008.To verify the absence of Ae. aegypti on Groote Eylandt, Medical Entomology (ME) of the Centre for Disease Control, NT Department of Health and Families conducted a post eradication survey of Alyangula and surrounding communities in January 2009. This article presents the results of the surveys conducted during and post-eradication, noting in particular the absence of Ae. aegypti and Aedes albopictus in the most recent survey.
